Until 1850, the city of Valencia just comprised the area inside its walls or Ciutat Vella as it is known nowadays. Moving the City Hall to its current location, together with the opening of the new train station in Valencia (La Estación del Norte) moved the city centre towards the south favouring the development of L'Eixample. As the result of this need of urban evolution and growth, some enlargement projects were made to build the neighbourhoods as we know them today: Pla del Remei, Gran Vía and Ruzafa.

For the development of L'Eixample the model of the Plan Cerdá, employed in Barcelona’s Ensanche, was adopted. This urban style is characterised by the arrangement of the buildings forming squares as “closed blocks” with chamfered corners. It is also worth mentioning the ornamental beauty and the majestic style of its buildings.

Ruzafa. It takes its name from an ancient Muslim poet called Al-Russafi. At the beginning, it was an old suburb of Valencia absorbed by the expansion of L'Eixample. For this reason, some areas of the neighbourhood are different from the classical arrangement in square being a distinctive feature full of charm. Ruzafa is one of the most cosmopolitan neighbourhoods of Valencia serving as a meeting point for poets, painters, designers and all kind of artists. It provides a great variety in gastronomy and culture.
